Medical Schools

Andy Chamberlain of Cambridge Assessment will give a seminar on Tuesday the 30th of June at 3.00 pm in the Division of Human Genetics (14 via C Forlanini) on Admission tests for Medical Schools fit for the future.  All College students and in particular medical students are invited to attend.

Admission to Medical Schools is a major challenge as all countries all over the world need to ensure that future doctors have the background knowledge and the human skills that the study and practice of medicine require. Cambridge Assessment have developed several of the admission tests used in the United Kingdom (BioMedical Admission Test, BMAT, and the International Medical Admission Test, IMAT) and in this seminar Andy Chamberlain will discuss the format of current admission tests and their future requirements and development.
